George the farmer: A seasoned man finds his vocation
George comes from Kisumu near Lake Victoria in Kenya. Despite graduating from high school, it was hard for him to find a job. In 2018, he started selling second-hand clothes on mobile stalls around Mombasa. Despite the energetic support of some market women, the business doesn’t really want to take off. In 2021, he decides to become a farmer. He runs two rented farms, but the country-wide drought causes one of the two farms to wither. To be better equipped in the future, Mama Africa finances an organic farming training course for him, which he completes with absolute enthusiasm. He is so convinced of organic farming that he immediately starts training local farmers in it. Now he wants to return to his home community of Kisumu to buy his own farm.
